It's amazing that Maynard Um of Wells Fargo still has a job.
My only comment is what the hell is taking Apple so long to build the Chinese stores? The progress has been way too slow, while the opportunity is huge. The biggest challenge for Apple on the China mainland is getting the government to drop the outrageous 17% tax added onto everything Apple. This is why so many buy in tax free Hong Kong.
Morons abound in the world of anal-ists. The difference in COG between 16gb and 32gb memory is not material. It's a rounding error in the big picture. More importantly, trying to look at Apple's value from the standpoint of a single relatively inexpensive component is like valuing a luxury car by the type of oil in the engine.
WTF - moronic! Just like they let everybody use their keyboard design. What a twit.
Before you post such a ridiculous and uninformed post you should really educate yourself on the subject matter. First, most of the android phones you mention, other than Samsung, are from cheap ass Chinese manufacturers, many of whom have NOT been paying Qualcomm as they should, or when they do, they don't report all their sales. How would we know that? Qualcomm reported it in their security filings. (And the overwhelming majority of those android devices you mention,...
Hello AI - WTF is this that you wrote in this article? "A high-profile iCloud breach in September resulted in a massive leak of compromising celebrity photos" First, iCloud WAS NOT breached.

Second, this did not happen in September, as it was not a single event. Various accounts had their passwords guessed over an extended period of...
Absolutely right - it is legalized corruption.
In the case of baseband, you've made your own argument that actually supports Apple bringing that tech in house. In a word, INNOVATION! Controlling the baseband radios allows Apple to not only save money in the Billions, but also the fact that Apple's strategy has always been to bring unique and innovative solutions to consumers within vertical integration. Period. What would drive this effort is the fact that even more of our life activities are going to become wireless -...
Excuse me but "shipments for the holiday quarter falling between 67 million and 69 million units" would be much better said to be RISING to between 67 - 69 million!
Beautiful! I'm back in China for the month of March and can't wait to see some of the new stores, and customer reactions. What is so sad is the fact that many, if not most, Chinese Mac customers load windoze on their computers and don't use OS X at all. Hopefully that will change soon.
